"We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. We worked day and night in order not to be a burden to anyone while we preached the gospel of God to you." 1 Thessalonians 2:8-9

This blog is much more than our family and our crazy antics. After being overseas in Haiti for 4 years we prayed about coming back to the States and just still felt like God was going to use our family overseas...so here we go again. The big move to St. Vincent and the Grenadines and now the school growing and moving to Barbados. We just can't seem to rest until our family can love as many as we can to relationships with Christ. We always feel so blessed to meet the many people we get to serve with overseas, and of course love that you are reading with us as we serve in a new culture!

Giving in So Many Ways

Give a Gift that Gives this Holiday Season!

Back when we were missionaries in Haiti, I worked with Allison Lowe. We worked right across the hall from each other and both had boys just a few months apart. Needless to say, we became close friends during our time in Haiti. The same year that we left Haiti to begin our new ministry with WISE, Allison and her family moved back to her home state of North Carolina, where her husband Lenny is working on his PhD. She also began working as an Independent Consultant with Thirty-One Gifts and she recently contacted me to see if she could help us raise funds for WISE through Thirty-One and we said YES!

As we all know, the holidays are fast approaching. Through this fundraiser, you have the opportunity to give a gift that gives back to WISE. Allison will be donating her 100% of her commission to WISE for every purchase that is made through this fundraiser being held November 23rd-December 5th.

We are hoping to add some new books to the WISE library through this fundraiser.  Most of the books are falling apart or very outdated here.  So shopping at Thirty-One not only buys great gifts this season, but it also will help us get some new resources here at WISE.

If you are not familiar with Thirty-One Gifts, I am sure you will find something for yourself or for someone in your family as the perfect gift. Thirty-One’s products are versatile, stylish, and many can be personalized with embroidery! Who doesn’t love a personalized gift?  To view the products, you can visit mythirtyone.com/Allisonlowe and click on “View Catalog.”

This is such an easy way for you to get some holiday shopping done AND help us out at WISE. It is simple. To purchase through this fundraiser:

1.       If purchasing before the 27th or if you’d like to pay by check, contact Allison directly. Her information can be found on mythirtyone.com/allisonlowe

2.       If purchasing on the 27th or after, go to mythirtyone.com/allisonlowe to view the catalog. From Allison’s home page, click on “My Parties” and then “WISE Fundraiser!” You must enter your order through this link in order for the donation to be made.

3.       After you place your order, 25% of the purchase price will go directly to WISE!

4.       If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or Allison directly!

5.       Fundraiser ends on December 5th!  This is when all orders will be placed together.

Also, don’t miss out on the amazing Customer Special going on! For every $31 spent, get a Mini-Utility Bin, Thermal Tote, Cinch Sac, Timeless Wristlet or Timeless Beauty Bag for only $5!

Thank you so much friends!
